Parker Charles Butler is Here!!

Introducing... the newest member of the Butler clan... Mr. Parker Charles Butler!
Weighing in at 7lbs 13oz, with a length of 20 inches...
this little bundle of joy has captured the hearts of his whole family, including but not limited to:

His Mama:
His Dada:
And his big brother:

We are so happy to announce the birth of Parker on June 30th at 2:04pm. His arrival was the craziest, scariest, most painful, and most amazing thing I've ever been through (and deserving of it's own post). He arrived in a fashion that screams, "Here I come, ready or not!" But we wouldn't have it any other way.

How can I explain how it's been having a second? It's been... great. I'm guessing it's because we've been through it before, but it's as if the second time around is more enjoyable. We aren't so nervous about every little thing and we've come at it much more relaxed. It doesn't hurt that he is so darn cute, too ;)

Landon has been a great big brother. He loves to see "baby" and likes to give him as many kisses as we will allow. Today some friends came by with their two month old and when asked about the babies, Landon pointed to Parker and said, "Mine!"  I think he may just be the sweetest big brother there is.
We are so fortunate the way things have worked out. We are in a nice new home and we have two happy, healthy little boys. Nate has the month of July off for paternity leave so we are just taking this time to enjoy hanging out as a family, getting settled, and getting to know our newest addition.
